W&G stuck in screen . XBLA ver.

posted by bravesirrobin on - last edited - Viewed by 768 users

So I bought the game today and everything was going great. Other than a couple framerate issues and Wallace missing his pupils after saving Ms. Flit from the bees (Thought it was funny even though he looked demonically possessed).

Right after Gromit arrives in the truck and I turn the auto-pilot on, I'm stuck at the dashboard screen. There's a prompt, press B to exit, but it doesn't work. I've tried every combination of button presses to no avail. I tried the pause menu and exiting the game. But nothing works and now all I have is an unplayable save.

I don't want to restart my game, and there might be the possibility that it could happen again. Just hoping I'll get to play your game again sometime in the future, and I hope you'll fix this in an update. Cheers.

  • Same problem here, stuck at the the dashboard. I have tried everything short of deleting my saved game. I played through the demo with no problems. Shooting bees with a porridge gun is fun..., but i would rather not have to start over.

  • I'm another one with this problem.

    I also played through the demo okay. I wonder if the demo is the problem? Do we have any instances where this gamebreaker occured to someone who did not play the demo?

  • Once Wallace was by the police station/newstand and he performed the action to look at the sign between the two and the game locked up, though the Xbox itself did not.

    The other time was when Wallace used to the map. He was in the basement talking to that military guy (sorry, don't remember his name) and he used the map. The entire screen went black.

    This makes me a little frightened to play the game as I don't want to lose progress.

    Yeah, I didn't play the demo. I just bought the game outright. That's how much I love W&G. :-)

    I bought the game outright, sight unseen. I've not tried the demo.

  • Well, if they don't fix it soon, I for one will not be bothering with the next three episodes.

    As a 360 gamer I am not used to gamebreaking crashes and am very disappointed with this obviously rushed effort.

  • ...at least a bit of feedback would be nice from the team, so we at least know you are still looking into it!!!!

  • Hi, I signed up to let the developers know I'm also having a problem with the XBLA version in the same section. Gromit responds when I click the buttons for autopilot, horn and wipers, but trying to exit the dashboard area by pressing B isn't working. I have a bookmark saved just before I enter the dashboard and I've tried multiple times in getting past the dashboard but it just isn't working.
    Just wondering if this is still being looked in to?

  • I've had a little breakthrough here, i've managed to get out of the dashboard screen!

    Pause the game and go into options menu.
    Make sure you change the Give Hints to 'often' and subtitles are ON.

    Next go into the leaderboard menu. flick around the leaderboards for a while changing the category, and moving up and down the leaderboards with LB and RB.

    After a while hopefully you will see the background screen change (keep your eye on the edges where part of the paused game screen can still be seen.)

    When you unpause the game you will find yourself in the 'through the passenger window' screen.

    This has worked for me twice now, but unfortunately the first time I got stuck a bit further along underneath the queen bee (same problem, B for exit does not work).

    Luckily when you come out from that it says it is unable to save at that point in the game. Therefore I was able to try again at the dashboard screen.

    However, if I can't find a way around the second gamebreaker it might be to no avail! B to exit might not work for the remainder of the game!

    If you cannot get the same result as me, just keep doing a mixture of changing the options and flicking around the leaderboards.

    Let's hope the developers fix this properly soon!

    good luck, everyone.
